good morning, looking live at sunol, folks making their way around town. hopefully you'll stick around for another 15 minutes or so. many of us are focusing on the presidential election, big money is also going into state ballot propositions as well though. for more let's bring in nbc bay area larry gur sten. let's talk about when we say big money, we mean big money for these propositions. >> we mean big money. this comes from a report issued to the secretary of state or by the secretary of state. as of august 31st, already more than $155 million have been spent supporting or opposing california state ballot propositions. i'll tell you, with the most important days yet to come, between now and the election,
7:45 am
it's likely double that amount. at least $300 million will be spent by november 6th. one of the most interesting facets of this is that just like individuals have been writing big fat checks for the presidential contest, guess what? they are writing big fat checks here, individual to promote their own personal ballot ideas. >> let's talk about which propositions are getting the most cash. a lot of times they are not the ones you might think. >> and of course we could talk about all 11, but i singled out three. proposition 33, that's the one designed to give automobile insurance companies more leeway, more leeway in establishing rates. so far this initiative has gone $8.3 million, almost all of which has been given by mercury insurance ceo george joseph. here's the interesting thing here. his company was fined $500,000 in 2010. why?
7:46 am
for overcharging, discriminating against drivers. that's a lot to talk about. proposition 38, which would raise state income taxes of almost all californians to help finance public education. that's attracted $19 million from one person. civil rights lawyer munger and this is going head to head with proposition 30, a less taxing measure supported by brown which brought support from business and labor. last, we could go on, let's look at prop 39, which would close a huge billion and a half dollar tax loophole as the price demanded by republicans to patch an already, already out of whack state budget. so proponents here have raised $19 million for the proposal to kickback the corporate loophole with almost all of the money coming from thomas stiier.

7:48 am
sometimes hard to read and hard to get through. but maplight.org actually goes through proposition by proposition, donor by donor and shows you who's giving what to whom. i'll tell you, then you begin to get an idea, if that person or that group is for or against it, how do i feel? and it helps become a more educated voter, isn't that what we want to be? >> i would say yes. >> we will see you in a couple of weeks. >> you can always get his insight nbcbayarea.com. president barack obama did a little fact checking on the campaign trail this weekend at the sports bar in orlando. you'll have to listen carefully. >> born where? >> hawaii. >> okay. you have a birth certificate? >> yes, sir. >> in case you couldn't hear that, the president asked the boy who said he was born in hawaii whether or not he had a birth certificate. the joke references conspiracy
